Odell Brewing Company opened in Fort Collins, Colorado in 1989. Odell was the second self-packaging craft brewery in Colorado, the first in Fort Collins.

Doug Odell, Wynne Odell, and Corkie Odell started the brewery in a 1915 grain elevator just down the street from their current location, after deciding to start in Fort Collins due to all the factors that contribute to its thriving craft brewing industry today. It is a prime location for a brewery because it was near Old Town which was a place where college kids and locals came to enjoy their leisure time. It also had access to the Poudre River, which helps to the breweries lucrative business.
